The Star Inn
Stable. Early C20 by Ernest Newton for Richard Biddulph Martin. Coursed
limestone rubble and brick with some weatherboarding and stone tiled roof
laid in diminishing courses and partly hipped. L-plan; main part of four
bays aligned north/south with second bay from south end treated to appear
like a wagon bay and having gabled midstreys with double doors. East
elevation has ventilation slits, pilaster buttresses in bays flanking mid-
strey and a window with a cambered head at the southern end. The west
elevation has a pilaster buttress and three stable doors with cambered heads
to the right of the midstrey. At the southern end is a loft door flanked by
two tiers of alighting ledges and entry holes for pigeons. The north-west wing
is of two plus two bays and two levels. The south elevation of the two western-
most bays projects slightly and has a door flanked by small windows, the right
of which has a cambered head. Above is a loft opening with a raking roof and
three skylights. The two bays to the east have two stable doors, one of which
has a transom light with three glazing bars and is flanked by two large windows
with cambered heads. The-upper half of the windows is glazed and the lower half
is open for ventilation with wooden mullions. Interior has queen post roof
trusses. The floor is paved with blue bricks and all the original fittings
survive, timber loose-boxes, mangers etc. The stable is particularly well-
detailed and, together with the adjacent haybarn (qv) is listed as a rare
example of the approach of an Arts and Crafts architect to the problem of
designing agricultural buildings.
